Another famous cat to tell you about ...

From The Sun 24 May

Eye on the prize ... Midge

(Ben Lack Photography)

Owner Martin has been training with 12-year-old one-eyed Midge since his pet beat him back from the shops.

He made their runs into eight-minute film The Great Race and it is now being shown at the Cannes film festival in France.

O2 worker Martin, from Bradford, has flown to France in the hope Hollywood will want to make it into a feature film.

He also plans a sequel which sees Midge race Olympic hero Usain Bolt.

That is so funny. We're glad the dogs walk Jan and we don't have to jog her. Uh, jog with her. We don't have to move too fast.

Our Auntie Em Kitty Girl is just like that, except we've never taken photos of her running, but when we go out to exercise walk we have to be careful she is in the house or we worry she would get lost. She is such a love of a kitty!
